Best body bootcamp: Final thoughts

Best Body Bootcamp is officially over. :(

I ended on a high note by completing all of the workouts week 8 called for. Of course, my injury is no fun, but I still had a good week considering that.

  • M: OFF
  • Tu: 6mi at 8:02
  • W: 4mi at 8:34, BBB workout A
  • Th: OFF
  • F: 30 min bike trainer, BBB workout B
  • S: BBB workout C, 20 min self-led yoga
  • S: 12mi bike ride (outside!) at 18.5mph

I also met my walk the furball goal and one sweet per day goal this week. I've toyed with the idea of eliminating desserts all together again for awhile, but I haven't found the willpower yet. Sigh...

I really enjoyed bootcamp. Of course, I wish I was able to follow the plan more closely but it was a bit too much for me to handle with half marathon training. Though, I'd still consider it a success! In these past 8 weeks, I realized I actually like lifting, rediscovered how awesome plyometrics are, PR'd twice in the half marathon, and got a tiny bit more toned.

Yay, for strength training! I'll definitely be incorporating weights into my regular routine from now on.

Thank you so much to the lovely Tina for hosting Best Body Bootcamp. It was challenging but fun, and I can't think of a better way to describe a workout plan. I'll definitely register for BBB 2.0 when it's offered. :)
